, virginia governor bob mcdonald who is all too familiar with the pain of a mass shoot, how his state changed gun laws and whether those laws have any teeth to it. plus, the growing number of voices in his state calling for tighter gun control. but first, look ahead at the president's schedule. it's another quiet day on the schedule and one that is mostly cleared, it appears, to deal with fiscal cliff negotiations. you're watching the daily rundown only on msnbc. you can prevent gas with beano meltaways, or treat gas with these after you get it. now that's like sunblock before or sun burn cream later. oh, somebody out there's saying, now i get it! take beano before and there'll be no gas. that's a good thing, but it doesn't cover everything. only about 80% of your part b medical expenses. the rest is up to you. so consider an aarp medicare supplement insurance plan, insured by unitedhealthcare insurance company. like all standardized medicare supplement plans, they help save you up to thousands in out-of-pocket costs. call today to request a free decision guide. with these types of plans, you
bob goodlatte of virginia is the new chairman of the house judiciary committee. he is the highest ranking republican with control over gun regulations. gun safety regulation you think it's on his mind? no way. sheer what he says. we're going the take a look at -- how many times do you hear people say we're going to take a look at it. this is what he says. take a look at what happened there and what can be done to help avoid it in the future. but gun control is not going to be something that i would support. so i ask where have the republicans been? meanwhile, you have state officials in states out there like texas. their governor, rick perry, saying the solution is to do what? put guns in the hands of the teachers? just what they want to do. republican lawmakers in other states like oklahoma, nevada, south dakota and texas, calling for teachers to become enforcers in the classroom. it's hard to believe how meaningful legislation can be passed when a party still opposes laws to make us safer. time is of the essence. president obama ended his comments today by reading a list of amer
's nothing. >> can you imagine a bob dole or george mitchell not getting that done? >> no. >> and the president did go to $400,000 on the tax level. i think it's clear he probably would go to $500,000, too. >> sure. >> the really important thing he did, he went along with the republican demands of entitlements on acola. that's a big deal. and means testing, affluent seniors for medicare. that's not as far as some are willing to go. >> it is, though. there is no doubt the president doing that, the white house is getting killed. >> by the left wing. >> by the left on -- and i think that really is the measure. they're getting killed. >> on acola. >> andrea, i creditized the white house a month or two ago about the president always talking about being courageous, but he was always courageous on the health care bill, on the stimulus, all these things that republicans weren't going to support anyway. but here it's significant. here talking about the cost of living adjustments. that's a lot of money over time. i thought boehner going to $1 million was significant as well. they've
. then at 8:00 a.m. eastern, senator ron johnson and bob corker. president obama issued a warning on "meet the press." >> on midnight, december 31st, if congress doesn't act, then everybody's taxes go up. and for the average family, that could mean a loss of $2,000 in income. for the entire economy, that means consumers have a lot less money to make purchases, which means businesses are going to have a lot less customers, which means that they're less likely to hire and the whole economy could slow down at a time when the economy is starting to pick up. >> but after it was all said and done, leaders on the senate floor couldn't get anything done, at least not yet. >> there's no single issue that remains an impossible sticking point. the sticking point appears to be a willingness and interest or frankly the courage to close the deal. i want everyone to know, i'm willing to get this done, but i need a dance partner. >> this morning, we've been trying to come up with some counteroffice to my friend's proposal. we haven't been able to do that. i've had a number of conversations with the presid
respect for the bond shared by those who experienced combat -- from medal of honor awardee dan inouye, bob kerrey, who also won that coveted award. john mccain, fritz hollings, john kerry, bob dole, and others. all of whom served their country with valor. here is what warren rudman said about that -- if you have had that experience, not much is left in life that will intimate you. nothing did intimate warren rudman. he was fearless in the pursuit for the right. he served on the ethics committee where i first got to know him -- warren rudman. justice souter and i talked about that a few days ago. i got a call from him and he asked me to come over and spend some time with him. i was happy to do that. he gave me an assignment. i was a new senator. the assignment was not an easy one. they thought i could do it. it worked out just fine. i got to know him very well. on the ethics committee, he was known as mr. integrity. he was known as mr. integrity in everything he did in life. that put a big exclamation mark on his service in the senate. it is because of him and his high regard for this young
, bob. we did. got it. >>> it is the one issue that affects just before he single one of us you can the fiscal cliff. think of it as, well this way, our economy is in a car headed toward that cliff and there's a lot of stake, including massive spending cuts and social programs and defense, expiration you the bush era tax cut, increases in other taxes on families like the alternative minimum tax and the expiration of the payroll tax holiday, there's this to think of, for 2 million unemployed worker, the loss of unemployment benefits. we have asked experts to join us for a fiscal cliff roundtable discussion, if you will. ron brownstein is a senior -- cnn senior political analyst and editorial director of the national journal and stephen moore, senior economics writer at the "wall street journal" and is in washington, d.c. first up, ron, will, do you think, these politicians reach a deal or not and why or why not? >> the fiscal cliff was yeelted as a doomsday machine to try to give them more will power to do what they can't do on their own, to reach a deal. the reason all of this was h
correspondent bob bazell. good to see you, bob. when we talked last night, what you said was we were missing a critical piece of information, which is where is the clot, and it's in the vein situated in the space between the brain and the skull behind the right ear. what can you tell us? >> this is a vein that drains blood from the brain into the central circulation system. the danger with it, because it's so close to the brain, is that if the clot were to grow, it could go inside the brain and become a stroke. that didn't happen according to the doctors. it's appropriate to treat this kind of clot with anti-coagulant therapy. one of the things everybody was talking about before was usually when somebody has a concussion, they get a blood clot called a subdural hematoma and that cannot be treated with that therapy because it presents certain dangers. because this is in a vein outside the brain it can be treated. it's a fairly rare complication with concussions, but it is a possibility. >> obviously, the big concern, that would have been the kind of result of a concussion that killed natasha
need for the quality of life we have to come together. this isn't bob dole. this isn't howard baker. this isn't ronald reagan. these are people that are quite extreme. what's happened is that many republican whose believe in compromise and trying work things out some defeated in primaries and the others are afraid of being defeated in primaries. this deadlock and partisanship, it began in 2007 and 2008 we democrats, who were in control worked with george bush on the t.a.r.p. and a number of things and barack obama got elected and mitch mcconnell announced his number one priority was not to improve the economy or try to improve quality of life but to defeat obama. and so that's the problem. now i do believe in 2012 the public's repudiated that. they re-elected the president, and democrats gained in both houses. we're seeing a painful process of republicans struggling to accept the fact their extremism was repudiated. >> congressman barney frank, it's good to see you tonight, sir. >>> let's get an update where we are. kelly o'donnell joins us and we welcome back nbc's white house corr
director, chuck todd. and later, senators bob corker and tom coburn. and congressman tom cole. plus an update on the condition of secretary of state hillary clinton who is hospitalized with a blood clot. we'll have a live report. you're watching "morning joe" brewed by starbucks. >>> the offers that i've made to them have been so fair that a lot of democrats get mad at me. i offered to make some significant changes to our entitlement programs in order to reduce the deficit. they say that their biggest priority is making sure that we deal with the deficit in a serious way. but the way they're behaving is that their only priority is making sure that tax breaks for the wealthiest americans are protected. >> all right. we're taking a look here as the clock counts down as we head over the fiscal cliff. a live look at capitol hill as the sun comes up over washington. they're working, working away there on capitol hill. here with us now from washington, former white house press secretary and former senior adviser to the obama campaign, robert gibbs, who looks like he's on a ski vacation. >

this morning, bob? >> reporter: well, chris, since we've been talking about this last night we don't have a lot of information. we just have this one statement from secretary clinton's office and the hospital is not saying anything. a lot of doctors are telling me the information in that statement is a bit contradictory. here's why. they say that she has a blood clot that stemmed from a concussion she got several weeks ago. but the problem is, blood clots that stem from concussions don't usually get treated with blood thinning drugs which is what they say they're doing here. either she has a concussion someplace else that may not -- excuse me -- a blood clot someplace else that may not be related to the concussion or there is more to her health that we don't know about. they say they're watching her closely for a couple days. we will have to continue to watch ourselves to see what the situation is but right now all we know is that she is in this hospital. she's under observation. we don't have any idea about what her condition is. and we're just watching and hoping for the best. chris? >> bob b

political reporter and bob franken, a syndicated columnist. welcome to both of you. before we get started i want to play you more on the interview on "meet the press" this morning. >> if it is crazy to call for putting police and armed security in our school to protect our children then call me crazy. i will tell you what the american people, i think the american people think it is crazy not to do it. it is the one thing that would keep people safe and the nra is going to try to do that. >> immediately following the interview new york senator chuck schumer called wayne lapierre tone deaf. what do you make of the discussion that the nation and the lawmakers are having around gun control especially considering how often these conversations seem to flare up after something horrible like this and fade just as quickly? >> it does fade just as quickly because the gun lobby terifies any politician who has hopes of being reelected. this comes to a real test of the united states government. are our lawmakers going to be able to come up with meaningful action to limit at least the fire power that is
was on display when bob dole wheeled himself on to the floor he once led that would ban discrimination against people with disabilities but the world war ii vet saw his efforts go down in bitter defeat due to several members of his own party voting know. joining me is congressman j.c. watts of illinois. what happened to the unity once displayed in the party not just the tax issue but not being able to pass something that was a republican idea like the u.n. disabilities treaty championed by folks like former senate majority leader dole, former president george h.w. bush what happened? >> thomas, i've been traveling the last couple of days and i've not seen all the details of what happened there, but obviously the republican party we're at a time of trying to reorganize we've had our heads handed to us a couple of times and national elections 2008 and 2012 and you know, there's some wounds, some sensitivities and right now i think the party's trying to navigate a day at a time, and the policy arena, in the policy arena a lot of those sensitivities come out and in a sense i think the party is try
about one state you've done a lot of reporting on, virginia. governor bob mcdonnell and ken ush nelly are calling for -- virginia is a bellwether state. which way do you think they're going to go? >> virginia went for president obama in the presidential election by about three points. polls showed that by a 9% margin despite huge, hundreds and hundreds of thousands of dollars of expenditures on virginia by the nra voters in virginia preferred president obama's approach on guns to mitt romney's by 9 points. so i think there's definitely a popular sentiment in virginia that we need to do something. >> john: josh, i realize americans love guns the way the rest of the world loves soccer but it is encouraging to hear how nra members support closing the gun show loophole and sensible background checks. i thank you for the terrific reporting you've done for think progress. josh israel, political reporter for think progress. >> thanks very much. >> john: coming up, do you remember the scene in the bible where jesus side lo
of that meeting with mitch mcconnell, senator bob corker of tennessee. thank you very much k you just give us a sense of the feeling that you got in that behind close doors meeting that just ended from your leader? >> sure. well, he did receive a call -- he had a call with vice president biden and so there are conversations. >> he received a call while the meeting was happening, didn't he? >> that is correct. i think he felt like, you know, the call was productive. i think progress is being made. and chained cpi, i want to make everyone, it is not part of the equation as far that is year's discussion goes. it is not dish know senator reid said some things on the floor but a but all of us understand that things like entitlement reform are going to be debt with unfortunately during the debt controlling debait. i think what shocked everybody in our caucus, truly, is that the president has campaigned this entire year on raising taxes on the wealthy, which we all understand is going to happen. i mean it is going to happen today, tomorrow or in the next couple of weeks but their proposal to us righ
correspondent. he's at new york presbyterian hospital. bob, what can you tell us? >> reporter: well, chris, we can tell you that it's not exactly clear what is happening with secretary clinton's health. all we have is a statement from her office. the hospital isn't saying anything and the the hospital says that she had this blood clot that stemmed from the concussion and she's being treated with blood-thinning drugs. the problem is that usually when blood clots come from concussions, they can't be treated with blood clots. so, either it's not really related to the concussion and she's got a blood clot in her leg or something, or there's something else going on that we're not being told. and right now, we're just sort of seeking that clarification and hoping for the best as she's being observed, as they say, for the next couple of weeks -- excuse me, for the next couple days, to make sure she's okay. chris? >> bob bazell, thank you for the time. >>> the opening bell just rang on wall street. despite the fiscal cliff deadline looming just hours from now, the markets are opening significantly hig
... ups? ups. not fantasy? who would have thought? i did. we did, bob. we did. got it. >>> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> does this mean we get susan rice back? i know, i know, it's a done deal. we are told that the president is picking john kerry to be secretary of state after hillary clinton. but if this was supposedly the reason that susan rice could not be considered for that job as well, this is out now, and it says in a fair world, we would get susan rice back in contention. this is the report of the independent accountability review board that was authorized by law as part of the response to the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, the attack that killed a serving u.s. ambassador for the first time since the 1970s. ambassador chris stevens and three oth
during a recent bout with the stomach flu. nbc's chief science and health correspondent bob bazell is at new york presbyterian hospital where secretary clinton is being treated. bob, i know this is a story we're all keeping a very close eye on. what's the latest? we know she has a blood clot that came from -- they say from the concussion. we know it's being treated with anti-coagulant drugs. a lot of doctors are puzzled by that series of events because most blood clots that come from a concussion would be in the brain, and they would not be treated with anti-coagulamt drugs. we don't know where it is or what her condition is. there's been no report about what her health status is other than she's under observation for these two days. there's a lot of puzzles here. a lot of people are hoping for the best, but clearly somebody doesn't come into the hospital over -- in the holiday berd just for a routine check-up, so something is going on. we hope to hear more, and we hope to see that she gets out of here in good shape pretty soon. we really -- i wish i had more informati information.
in 2008. was he the right choice this year, bob? >> well, if you go by their criteria of the most influence in the world of better or worse, can you make your argument. my argument for person of the year would be the central bankers of the world. from bernanke to the people at ecb, all the way to the bank of japan. those people had the biggest impact -- >> you are a finance guy. god bless you. >> i'm a little nerdy. sorry about that. >> we should do our own cnbc show. >> it is present company excluded. >> good call, john? >> no. really boring. really safe. not a very good call at all. he agree with bob here. absolutely. the central banker was the person of the year, same way the personal computer was years ago and you were, you know, as they put up a mirror, the most influential people this year were central bankers from japan to the united states to europe to mark carnie pulled out of canada to be uk central banker. that's the big story. >> my people of the year would have been the teachers and students of sandy hook elementary. i think they have changed america forever. sue? >>
in michigan, one of the fellows i met there was bob dole, and we became good friends, even to this day. and when i asked him, what are your plans, and he, without hesitating said, i'm going to be a county clerk. after that, i'm going to run for the state house. of course, first opening in congress, that's where i'm going. i figure that's a good idea. so i went to law school. i became assistant prosecutor. when the territorial office became available, i ran for that office. and when stated came along, i got to congress. a little ahead of bob. >> you were in the territorial legislature then before you became -- >> two terms in the house and part of a term in senate spent and then came here as a member of the house. and who did you come here with at that time? >> the house had one member. >> you mentioned senator dole, and the fact that you had been in the hospital with him in michigan. it's amazing that some of these friendships were formed long before any public service, norma minetta talks about being a friend of, excuse me, the sender from wyoming, al simpson, and meeting him when he
